“As with all very high performance cars, LaFerrari comes with a dry sump engine. The lubricant is injected into the engine after being cleaned by the oil filter.





The Powerful Engine

As I usually do with partwork vehicle engines, I add various bits of color to this engine to improve the overall look. The first thing I wanted to do was paint the provided Oil Filter black (it is really the oil filter cover). I used my airbrush and some Tamiya XF-69 NATO Black acrylic paint for this:

While this paint dried, I brought out my Black Sharpie and Metallic Sharpies and added some black and gold colors to various bolts and plugs on the bottom and side of the Engine Block Part:

On the Recovery Pump, I used a copper metallic Sharpie on these recesses just for fun:

Finally, I again used black and gold metallic Sharpies on the back of my Starter Motor:

Step 1

Retrieve your Recovery Pump from the previous stage. Firmly press the two side holes of this Pump onto the matching pins at this location on the side of the Engine Block Part, orienting it as shown.

This Pump also has two small pins (yellow arrow below) that need to also be fitted into their matching holes on the Block:

Step 2

Retrieve your Starter Motor from the previous stage. Firmly press the large D-shaped post of the Motor through this matching hole on the opposite side of the Engine Block Part, as shown:

Step 3

Press the pin of the Oil Filter fully into the matching hole at this location on the underside of the Engine Block Part, as shown:


There are not many great pictures of the LaFerrari’s F140 V12 engine outside of the car, however I am having fun making our engine look more interesting to the eye. We likely won’t be able to see any of these extra details anyway. Keep all of these parts nearby for the next stage.
